An option should be added to signals so alternative routes can be

selected in the case one route is occupied. This can be used to spread

trains in terminal stations or to balance load amongs two tracks.

This is already supported by default fall-through behaviour. For

example, if you have a signal with two routes, each with * rule, and the

first route can't be set, the train will set the second route.

The problem would be that the alternative route is be chosen *only* when the other one is not available. By that time the line would already be jammed.

no, it doesn't.

The system as it is designed now permits only for "waiting" for one

route at a time. It would require a change in update_route() to make an

useful "load balancing" approach possible. This is certainly one of the

things to do soon.
